I received a free Nature’s Sleep mattress for review. Nature’s Sleep is a company you need to take into consideration when choosing a mattress.  They also don’t subscribe to the one size fit’s all approach. The understand that there are many different types of sleepers and each of their mattresses is made with that in mind.

I had a chance to review the Emerald Gel Mattress which is the latest product from Nature’s Sleep. It was designed with stomach  sleepers in mind, which I am. I think stomach sleepers can be the hardest to accommodate since it is a position that can be hard on the back and is not recommended by most sleep experts.


Nature’s Sleep Mattresses come packed in a box. It weighed about 60 lbs. The box is also not as pretty as some but who cares, I’m not sleeping on the box and I would rather the money go into the mattress than design of a box.


I can say without a doubt that this is the best mattress I have ever slept on as a stomach sleeper. It beats out all the other mattresses I have reviewed thus far, including Savvy Rest which is a $3,000 organic latex mattress.

The first night I slept on it, I was shocked at how well I slept. No tossing or changing positions and best of all I was able to sleep on my stomach with no pain! The bed sleeps cool for a memory foam mattress. I always keep my room cool at night so not sure how it will perform in the summer when the AC can’t keep up but so far it has been great.

Unlike some of the other mattresses I have reviewed, this is a true memory foam mattress. You sink into the mattress and it conforms very well to your body. It doesn’t have much bounce at all which can be good or bad depending on your preference. I thought that I would miss some of the bounciness I have come to appreciate with my Savvy Rest bed but that all faded when I was able to get comfortable quickly, and stay comfortable all night.

According to their website, this bed works for all types of sleepers, back and side sleepers alike but especially for stomach sleepers. I used a very thin memory foam pillow to sleep on this bed which turned out to be a good choice.



The cover looks and feels great. It has a nice texture to it and is very smooth and cool to the touch. It has a zipper all the way around if you want to remove it just like all the other mattresses I have reviewed. This cover however is much thicker and of better quality. There’s actual a 1″ layer of vitex memory foam contained inside of it for another layer of softness.

Under the Hood


The Emeral Gel mattress contains a top layer of gel memory foam followed by another layer of memory foam then a more sturdy foam base. In all the mattress measures about 12 inches.



The Nature’s Sleep Emerald Gel is a very soft mattress. Softer than any mattress I have tried. A trade off is that you will sink into the mattress and lose some bounce. However an advantage to this is that there’s also less motion transfer.


In the video above you will notice that the bed doesn’t have any bounce. This can be good or bad depending on how much you like to bounce around! I appreciate how you just sink right into the bed and there’s little motion transfer.


Nature’s sleep offers a 20 year limited warranty on their mattresses. That’s a solid length of time but please make sure to read the fine print.  It should also be noted that Nature’s sleep does not have a trial period according to their FAQ. So it is a little bit more of a risk compared to the other mattresses reviewed.


If you are a stomach sleeper, you really can’t go wrong with this mattress.  I am able to fall asleep quickly and most importantly, stay asleep. I don’t wake up sore or numb. Instead I get up on time ready to start my day.

The queen sized Emerald Gel mattress has a list price of $2,800. However you can get 60% off all the memory foam mattresses they offer with the coupon code, SLEEPBEN60. Click Here to shop.

    On a softness rating of 1 to 10 how soft is this bed? Also does it keep you cool at night? I have horrible hot flashes and night sweats. Thanks

    1. This is a firmer mattress because the foam is denser than most mattresses I have reviewed. I would steer you towards other options if you want to stay cooler at night. The Purple would be a good option.

  2. I bought a Ghost bed and found my hips still hurt as a side sleeper. Ghost Bed has suggested that I could have this bed instead. Is this softer than the GhostBed, letting your hips sink in? They told me they will substitute this one for my GhostBed, but if I take the offer, there is no backing out since there is no trial period.

      Did you do this? Ghostbed is crazy uncomfortable and hard for me and they have offered me the emerald instead as well. I feel like with the way the company has acted (this is the second option that I have been given since trying to start a return and they refused my first return request for being too early) that I would have an incredibly difficult time getting my money back so I could buy a different bed.

    2. Yes I’m returning the ghost bed because it is also very firm. They offered to let me exchange my ghost bed for any mattress on their Nature’s Sleep site. I was tempted to try their 5 layer Euro mattress, But once again it would be a final sale with no trial.. Has anyone tried this mattress?

  3. Allison Page says:

    I was also offered this bed after trying to return a horribly uncomfortable GhostBed. I need a softer mattress. How does this one compare to the Purple mattress? I’m 280 lbs and had back pain on the GhostBed.

    1. Jana Miller says:

      Ghostbed has been hard to deal with in regards to a return…they keep pushing these other mattresses on me with no option to try them out…anyone had any luck with actually getting your refund?
